Knauf AMF Ceilings Complete Newly Built Cork Primary School

Latest News Fri, Jan 3, 2020 11:33 AM

A new school building for St Columba’s Boys National School in Cork has just been completed providing a modern and progressive learning environment. The school has been completed with Knauf AMF HERADESIGN ceilings throughout.

Design and acoustic performance were key criteria, which is why HERADESIGN was the first choice and installed in all the classrooms as floating rafts and throughout the school, in the main corridors, where bespoke swing down access panels were also installed.

Reddy Architecture architect, Edward Raftery said, “We really love the architectural raw wood wool quality of HERADESIGN. The visible texture was very desirable in this project as we were working with natural materials and it provided the required aesthetic contrast. HERADESIGN has its own character and we are delighted with how it looks.”

HERADESIGN is an innovative and versatile product, valued by specifiers for its high-performance characteristics, wood wool aesthetics and environmental credentials. For this project a calm neutral colour palette specified in warm-white provided a gentle contrast with the charcoal walls and l caramel floors creating the perfect backdrop for bold bursts of colour at each classroom entrance. HERADESIGN has the highest level of sound absorption, Class A, which improves speech intelligibility and creates a more relaxed atmosphere. It is manufactured from robust sustainable materials, and offers high impact and superior fire resistance.

John from John O’Reilly Ceilings said, “It was the first time working with Heradesign and we were really impressed with the quality of the panels. Knauf AMF were excellent with installation guidance and on-site support. We have received great feedback so the project has been a great success.”
